• Details On New Title Belt Design That’s Set To Debut Soon
As seen in the main event of WrestleMania 35 last night, Becky Lynch pinned Ronda Rousey in the triple threat main event to become the new RAW & SmackDown Women’s Champion.
According to Brad Shepard, WWE is now set to debut a new Title belt for Undisputed Women’s Championship:
According to a source in #WWE, a new women’s championship belt has been built. Apparently it’s similar to the current models, but with a white face, gold griming, and a black belt. #RAW #SDLive #WrestleMania

Speaking of Becky Lynch, WWE posted the following regarding Becky’s appearance on tonight’s post-WrestleMania 35 edition of RAW:
The Man brings the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Titles to Raw
“WrestleMania’s historic, first-ever women’s main event lived up to every bit of the hype, and then some. In a Winner Take All classic that may best be described as “indescribable,” it was Becky Lynch who emerged victorious over Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair, and in the process became WWE’s inaugural Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion.
And now The Man, accompanied by her newly won championship gold, comes around to Raw tonight. If history has taught us anything, it’s that anything can – and will – happen on the Raw after WrestleMania. What does Lynch have to say to the WWE Universe? Find out tonight on USA Network at 8/7 CT.”
